Philippians 2:13
‘For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.’


Psalm 71:12 ‘Do not be far from me, my God; come quickly, God, to help me.’

Help is one of the most basic functions we need in the course of life. From the moment we are born we need help and right up to the end of life we will need some form of help. We may think that we do not need help, but sooner or later we all need help. The professionals tell us that we have certain basic or foundational needs, and to meet these needs we need help. When we are born our parents help us, when we get married our spouse helps us, when we get sick the doctors help us and when we get old others have to help us. Sure, we love independence and want to do things for ourselves, but when we cannot help ourselves, we have to find help outside of ourselves. God wants to be exactly this for us – our Helper. The words of the great hymn confirm this: ‘Oh God, our help in ages past, our Hope for years to come.’ You can know God as your Helper.

Psalm 118:7 ‘He (the Lord) is my Helper.’

Don’t try to do it on your own when your God wants to help you. Take hold of the hope you have in Him and say: ‘My God will help me!’ 


Psalm 35:22 ‘LORD, You have seen this…’

There is nothing that is hidden from God. He sees all things, the good, the bad and the ugly. He sees what you have done while no one else noticed or appreciated the lengths you went to. He sees the way you have thanklessly served and tried to be a blessing and a help to others. He sees what you have had to face and what has been done to you. He sees all things, knows all things, and never leaves any matter undealt with. He is the One Who makes sure reaping follows sowing. So, you can rest in the knowledge that God sees and knows all things, even those things you hold within your own heart. The Lord sees all and knows all because He cares for you. He sees with the goal of intervening and taking care of things. Perhaps you feel like no one ever sees or notices you, but God does see.

Genesis 16:13 ‘You are the God Who sees me,’ for she said, ‘I have now seen the One Who sees me.’

So rest assured that He sees all things and say: ‘My God will see…’
